in Coastal Lighthouses

Since 1912, this lighthouse has been the pride and joy of Staten Island. The lighthouse resembles something you would see while sailing along the coast of Maine, not 141 feet above New York's Lower Bay. The buff-colored bricks that shape the 90 foot octagonal structure and the large brackets beneath the tower make the Staten Island Lighthouse an architectural beauty.
